would jeopardize our military readiness. they devastate priorities like education and energy and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats republicans, business leaders and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester are a really bad idea. now, some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare, and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. [ applause ] >> yes the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. those of us who care about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms. otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children and compromise a secure retirement for future generations. we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the wealth yeast and most powerful.
